Tranquil Pet-Friendly Rural Retreat in the Blackdown Hills AONB

Garden Cottage offers a lovely environment in which you can relax and unwind from the moment you enter. This charming property has exposed beams and stonework which hint at its former life as a farm building, it has now been converted into a delightful holiday home for up to 3 guests, with 1 well behaved dog welcome to stay.

Upstairs there is a large bedroom with ample room for us to add a bed for a child and a bathroom with hand held shower over the bath. Downstairs there is an open plan room with fully fitted kitchen, dining table and chairs and very comfortable seating around the wood burning stove. A cot and high chair are available on request. Outside there is a pretty patio area with garden furniture, a great spot for alfresco dining. Garden Cottage is perfect for a romantic break or as a peaceful place for couples or a small family to relax (an extra bed can be added).

The cottage is located in the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that offers some wonderful scenery for exploring during your stay. The cottage is found less than 5 minutes drive from the A30/A303, one of the main routes into the West Country. It is perfectly located for exploring Devon, Dorset and Somerset; an idyllic setting with beautiful countryside and the Jurassic Coast right on our doorstep. Visitors will also enjoy visiting all the National Trust propeties, shops, pubs and restaurants that are found nearby.
